Great place to experience the religious fervor here; and all the religious festivities. Busy place, with men and women separated.

whatever your religion, it's the place to pray for those you love.You can fell the vibration on the place, the power of thousands of people who came here to speak to God.
Women are separated from men; women go to the smaller area of the wall, at the right. Prayers on little bits of paper stuck into the wall tend to fall out easily. Snow removal a struggle, as it snows so seldom in Jerusalem that snow shovels are not available.
